80% lowers
 
I have been wanting to build an ar from a 80% lower. Does anyone have recommendations on where to buy or have any reviews on 80% lowers?

Thanks

I ordered mine from
gun parts plus.com
You can pick couple different options.
Also they have the least expensive jig that I could find

I looked into them earlier, the website didn't seem that great, so I was a little sketched out. How well did your finished product turn out?

Look at American spirit arms 95% lower.

Came out great I chose the black anodized one.
And they answer the phones shipping took about 10 days though.

Is it any different than any other 80% or is the 95% thing a gimmick? I'm not extremely familiar with 80% lowers but it doesn't look any different than any otherone to me.

A 90 percent lower has a pocket drilled right in front of the threading of the butt stock already done for you.
It's really not that much of a difference

I was wondering that too. It looks like an 80%, doesn't really matter I guess. The price is about the same.

I'd stay away from buying an EP Armory poly from Ares right about now.

Other than that are you looking for forged or billet.

Looks like the only difference.
